Lionsgate Films have officially announced that they will release on Blu-ray director Marcus Dunstan's horror thriller The Collection (2012), starring Patrick Melton, Emma Fitzpatrick, Marcus Dunstan, Christopher McDonald, and Navi Rawat. The release will hit retail shelves on March 26th.
Written by the established horror writing team Patrick Melton and Marcus Dunstan (Feast series, Saw IV - Saw 3D: The Final Chapter). When Elena (Fitzpatrick) is talked into attending an underground warehouse party with her friends, she finds herself caught in a nightmarish trap where the revelers are mowed, sliced and crushed to death by a macabre series of contraptions operated by a masked psychopath. When the grisly massacre is over, Elena is the only survivor. But before she can escape, she is locked in a trunk and transported to an unknown location. Fortunately for Elena, one man - Arkin (Stewart) - knows exactly where she's headed, having just escaped from there with his life and sanity barely intact. Elena's wealthy father hires a crack team of mercenaries to force Arkin to lead them to the killer's lair. But even these hardened warriors are not prepared for what they encounter.

While neither this film nor the original completely work, I found both to be entertaining. They both do some things that are atypical of the slasher genre. Holmes is absolutely correct concerning their relation to each other.
